Yes, Maam, these are dandy taters! Haven't fried sweet ones before, but now I know you can. This dish is so easy to fix and the end result is outstanding! Served them with Karen Monahan's Parmesan Chicken and my, my, we had a lovely dinner! Thanks for posting another winner, Inez. Laudee C.

These were excellent! I love sweet potatoes and needed a new way to prepare them. I added vanilla (about 2 tbs) during the simmering stage. What a nice added flavor. The thing I liked most was the carmalized type coating on the potatoes. Definately satisfied my sweet tooth. Also, I would highly recomend cutting the potatoes into 1/2 to 1 inch cubes. I diced mine pretty thin and I personally think they would have been better if they were thicker chunks. Enjoy, this was a GREAT cooking variation to the ordinary sweet potato. Don't forget to add vanilla too.

I have tried this recipe twice and both times had great success with it. I do make one small adjustment though. Instead of the 2T. sugar, I use 2T Splenda. This should cut the calories considerably and makes it better for those with Type II Diabetes.
